This is the one Ernesto victim I had to work on so far. 23" dbh Quercus rubra, ~110' tall. Leaning on hickory and white oak but mostly on a pine. damaged roots on 2 sides and crop of green nuts aggravated the risk.
Wondering how others would get this on the ground with minimal damage to other trees, and for how much. Firewood left, brush chipped. Job is for friend/neighbor who did not have the sense to bring me in before the graders did their damage, but now don't want to spend too much.
First pic shows entire root plate is in the top two feet of earth. Second and third show the tangle of tops; sorry but no pic from a distance. Fourth pic is damage done to the pine--what would you do with this? Would you climb the toppled oak?
